"First of all, just let me say that I love your site! I'm hoping that you or one of your readers can help me track down a perfume of which I find absolutely no trace on the internet. When my mother passed away in 1998, I got a box with some of her perfumes in it. I hadn't really delved into them until recently (and here it is, coming up on 10 years!) One of the perfumes is called "Ombre Libertine" by a company called Parfumerie Contemporaine, located at 16, place Vendome in Paris (now the site of Piaget Jewelers). For all intents and purposes, this fragrance never existed (no reference on any perfume site that I've checked). It's a wonderful fragrance, and all that I have left is a spray bottle about 1/3 full. I would love to find some more if it's still around!
Thanks - D......."
Thank you for your kind words. I asked two sellers who were selling a perfume called "Ombre Libertine" to please tell us more about it if they could, but both were unsure as to its provenance and whereabouts. In fact they were so unsure about it that they wondered if we might not be talking about "Ambre Libertine" by L'Oréal a perfume that was popular in the 1980s.
Here is one of the two links that is still active:
It would be interesting to see a picture of the perfume bottle if you had one handy.
If you really want to pursue this, I would try contacting folks from the International Perfume Bottle Association; they have a "Mystery Bottle Center" for example that might be a good place to exchange on this topic.
If a reader knows about Ombre Libertine by Parfumerie Contemporaine, Place Vendôme, please let us know!
